Vizio has outlined the new “Premium 42″ 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar”. The new device features a simplistic modern design and a list of impressive features to allow it integrate into your current setup.
The 42″ 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and Satellite speakers (S4251w) now has a release date and a price-tag. The new set comes with new convenience features, such as a Display Remote and Bluetooth connectivity. The wireless subwoofer that can sit “up to 60′ feet away and rear satellite speakers that easily connect to the subwoofer”, the 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar envelops the living room in immersive, true cinematic audio. The sound bar is Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround qualified with 102 dB of audio and “less than 1% Total Harmonic Distortion” according to the company’s press-release sent out earlier today. The company also added that the DTS Circle Surround “upgrades standard stereo content from the listeners favorite band or artist, resulting in 5.1 surround sound playback”.
“The new 42″ 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar has been engineered to project 102dB of sound with very low distortion, further ensuring audio is heard as the artist intended,” said John Schindler, VIZIO VP of Product Management. “As one of the only 5.1 sound bars on the market, our award-winning 42″ model is a great value, featuring a wireless subwoofer that offers room-shaking bass performance going down to 40Hz, satellite speakers for rich, immersive audio and Bluetooth so you can stream music from your smartphone or tablet and enjoy it in 5.1 surround sound without even turning on the TV.”
Understanding how consumers interact with their sound bars, VIZIO’s flagship 42″ 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar features a remote with built-in LCD display, making it easy to control volume and settings from a distance. This new Display Remote eliminates the need to squint across the room to view current input, adjust bass or enable the built-in DTS audio technologies. The added convenience of built-in Bluetooth support also gives consumers the ability to stream music to their VIZIO sound bar directly from Bluetooth-enabled smart phones, tablets or other audio playback devices.
Consumers can find the 42″ 5.1 Home Theater Sound Bar now at Amazon.com, Costco, Costco.com, BestBuy.com, Walmart.com, VIZIO.com and in-store at Best Buy the week of 5/27 for $329.99.
